Johnson resigned as Foreign Secretary yesterday.
WITH THE RESIGNATION of Boris Johnson as UK Foreign Secretary has come debate, recriminations and a lot of media coverage.
Johnson became the second member of Theresa May’s cabinet – following Brexit Secretary David Davis – to resign in as many days yesterday, telling May:
“The dream is dying, suffocated by needleless self-doubt.
“In that respect, we are truly headed for the status of colony – and many will struggle to see the economic or political advantages of that particular arrangement.”
Here is how the UK media covered it:
The i casts Johnson as Brutus to May’s Caesar
The Times went for a file image of Johnson and Davis
The Sun has its priorities
The Independent hopes you all still remember 24
The Mirror didn’t hold back
Metro went with a clever pun
The Daily Express called Johnson’s take on Brexit “damning”
The Telegraph said that the pain for May could get worse
And the Daily Star doesn’t think it’s even the biggest story of the day
